So I’ve got a small issue. Whilst watching a movie off the external drive last night, my dog knocked my laptop, causing ot to to fall (luckily I managed to catch it) but my drive got disconnected (though the drive did not fall). When I tried to reconnect the drive it operated normally until I opened the video file. VLC opened the file and crashed immediately. Upon restarting my PC, The drive does not show in windows explorer but does show in Device manager. Data life gaurd recognises the drive, but its registers it as a 0mb capacity.
Is the drive dead?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
